The Future of Software Outsourcing
Forrester Research, a research and consulting firm in its report says that, jobs that are getting lost in
the United States due to Software Outsourcing are basically low salary IT jobs such as software
programming or computer support specialists or computer operators. However, on the other hand,
high paying jobs like system analysts, network analysts and research analysts are continuing
dominating the market. In fact, jobs in this sector are growing at the steadily rate of 4 to 5% every
year. Normally, these jobs require excellent domain knowledge and idea about the internal working of
IT systems and business process. In software outsourcing these qualities are difficult to find.
Jobs that not get affected by software outsourcing
Higher skilled jobs such as system analysis and application development are increasing at the rate of
6% per year. That’s because, their demand is growing continuously. Also, software outsourcing can be
shifted to India or other offshore software development countries, where buyers need in-house
workforce to customize and upholder software.
Reasons for decrease in Software outsourcing in future
Are you the one afraid from this boom of Software Outsourcing? If yes, there is news which can lower
down your fear for a great extent. According to a report, attraction of cost saving in software
outsourcing is yet very high and because of that, increase in jobs like software programmer will be
very less. That further results into very low increase in software programming jobs, salary rise will
also hardly 1% in next few years. In fact, salary of computer operators and database administrators
will also grow at the minimal rate of 1%. However, salaries of computer research scientists and
information system managers will have highest growth at around 3.5% every year whereas salaries of
analysts and system administrators will grow at the rate of 2 to 3% every year.
Offshore software development
It is also predicted that the market of software outsourcing which has major costs saving today will
decrease by 2008. The main reason behind this will be the decreasing gap between the US salary and
the outsourcing countries such as India. As, it will lower the salary in US, while in India and other
offshore software development countries, because of lack of availability of resources, salary rise will
be very high. It will also decrease the costs saving. Finally, companies will prefer their in-house
resources rather then Offshore Software Outsourcing.
